Probably you think Andie and I are extremely elegant foodies with refined palates and probably you think that we eat foie gras and escargot and, probably, you are right. Except, no you aren’t. Andie and I are from Texas: we are not refined. We like street meat, Doritos and BEER, German beer.
Both Andie and I are lucky to have found a boy as easy to please as we are, and this weekend, one of those boys had a big birthday
To celebrate, we took this bum to Zum Schneider, an indoor Bavarian beergarden on Avenue C on that lowaiside. If you are looking for a loud, rowdy place to eat pretzels, drink huge beers, and scream a lot, WE’VE FOUND IT.
Now, this particular night, Andie had already made me a delicious dinner of leftovers from Dinosaur Bar B-Que (another New York must) but once we got to the bar and I looked at the menu, I knew this was gonna be one of those two dinner evenings.
In an effort to not be a fat kid, I went with an Appetizer. I ordered “Schupfnudeln im Sauerkraut ” – which loosely translates to “YUM!” No, actually its, “Hand rolled, pan fried crispy potato dumplings tossed in sauerkraut”. Oh damn, my mouth just watered.
Andie’s camera sucks, so here’s a blurry picture of my Potato-Cabbage Delight:
The potatoes were crispy and soft at the same time , and the Sauerkraut was DELICIOUS – salty perfection!
To wash down the sodium, I started with a big ass $7 Schneider Weisse (wheat beer) followed by a really smooth Jever Pilsener. Andie started with a Würzburger Pilsener, that she claims to have loved, followed by the Reissdorf Kölsch (lager), an Augustiner Edelstoff (the birthday boy’s favorite) andddddd a drunken bedtime. Great night – well spent with friends and beer: they go together like me and fabulosity, or Andie and fringed cowboy boots. HAHA!
